This week, Iowa law enforcement placed a truck out of service for tire safety violations.
On Monday, Iowa DOT Motor Vehicle Enforcement (MVE) took to Facebook to detail a “not so routine CMV inspection” that resulted in an out of service order.
From Iowa DOT MVE:
A not so routine CMV inspection uncovered the reason this driver was operating a CMV at 30 mph in a 65-mph speed zone…Enforcement action was taken against the driver and the vehicle escorted to a safe location for repairs, it was placed out of service until the tires were replaced. It appears the brake locked up on that axle, dragging the tires until worn like pictured. The driver did have multiple opportunities to stop for repairs and choose not to. Thank you to all the professional drivers who take safety seriously!
